ATC cleared the flight to 10,000 feet, queried whether there was an emergency situation, after the crew affirmed ATC asked to squawk emergency. The crew subsequently advised they were able to maintain 14,000 feet, the cabin was fully pressurized, just the crew oxygen supply wasn't working. They wanted to divert to Chicago O'Hare,IL (USA).
